Jabee, a new passionate and talented rapper hailing from Oklahoma City just released a video for “Dreams” where he references music icons who influenced him. Recently, we had the pleasure of attending his album release party in New York City at Pianos. He’s signed to MURS’ 3:16 label, so MURS was in attendance and Jabee closed the show with a heartfelt set.
Jabee was already one of URB Magazine’s Next 1000 when his DJ Vadim-produced Blood Is The New Black mixtape dropped in 2008. His Must Be Nice mixtape collaboration with Terry Urban and Mick Boogie featured Green Lantern, 9th Wonder, Blu and Oddisee. His 2011 Lucky Me mixtape clocked 40,000 downloads. Jabee contributed a track to the official Boondocks Season 3 mixtape, and was the opener for El-P and Killer Mike’s Run The Jewels Tour last year.
Chuck D of Public Enemy says, “Jabee’s music has the potential to change the world.”
Jabee says “Dreams” is about “dreams we all share big and small. I’m sure the dreams I had growing up are similar to others trying to overcome circumstances to live their dreams.”
*Catch Jabee on The Ice Box Tour with Murs starting January 17.
